Project 1 Sampling Complete!

Hi everyone! I hope you all have been doing fabulously well. As for me, I have truly missed blogging. I'm trying my best to multi-task given my hectic schedule with classes and work. Anyways, I wanted to share with you my first weaving sample! I've already shared a portion of it, and the rest includes experimenting with materials, and samples of twills, rib weaving, lacing techniques, making holes, enlaying, exposed warp, and irregular weft packing. There's more, but the list is exhausting! So much experimenting in one little sample. I was working with 120 warps. The enire sample is about 3 yards long. Today we learned how to draft. I'm a little intimidated, but we'll see how it goes! If anyone has any tips let me know!

Also, I am currently working on a really fun CAD project that I'll post up soon! I'll be done with the project next week :) Again, apologies for my lack of activity. Please do know that I love you all and I'm doing my best to keep you updated! Thank you to those who have been reading. Your support means so much to me. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week!

Here are some images I thought were very nice and inspirational to me, being I'm working on repeat patterns at the moment. A very important element in design, repetition is everywhere if you pay close attention. We use it to create unity and rhythm, which is very pleasing to the eye. Next time your out and about, look around; trees, bricks, light posts, plants, etc.. all naturally create pattern that we don't even take notice to every single day.
